A: Served a dark brown-black color with a creamy tan head that fades slowly to lots of lacing.

S: Nice rich aroma of roasted malt and grain, with a bit of chocolate and coffee.

T: Flavor of roasted malt, some grain, with a mixture of chocolate and coffee. There is a mild bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Fairly full body, smooth and creamy with a velvety texture. Very good balance

Easy drinker. Excellent stout, a good example of the style. Well worth checking out.

I was given this in a shaker pint.

Appearance- Look at that beautiful, black body! No highlights on this one whatsoever. The head is about a finger, very dense, and a light tan in color. It almost looks like a head off a nitro-tap, but I am assured it is not. And the sheet lacse is fantastic.

Smell- The head is slightly roasted, just a little bit of sweet, caramel-like malt. There is some oat in there, but it is crazy big.

Taste- The sweet quality is apparent immediately, slightly toffee and a little dark fruit. There is some roastiness and oat that follows into a decent finish. This is really good!

Mouth feel- Well, it goes down easily. However, it is just a medium body and a little watery on the tongue. I would appreciate a little more creaminess.

Overall- This is a really solid stout. It tastes great and feels pretty good. I would have this again and again.

Pours a deep brown black with a dense foamy three finger khaki head. Very mild on the nose, a hint of dark roasted chocolate malt, oats and leather. Pleasant flavors, chocolate, bit of cocoa, mild oatmeal, and a smidgen of smoke rounds out the dark roasted malt backbone. Fairly dry, modestly carbonated, creamy and smooth. Solid offering from Summit.

Served on nitro-draught in a bar in St. Paul, Minnesota. Reviewed from notes taken over a Thanksgiving Holiday. Expectations were high given that I love stouts and it was on nitro. I thought it was curious that an oatmeal stout was on nitro, which got me excited.

A: Pours a two finger head of absolutely lovely cream lacing, wonderful thickness, and great retention. Moreover, a bubble show accompanies as tan bleeds into black. Colour is a solid black. Very appealing.

Sm: Cream and nitrogen. Some roast. A mild strength aroma.

T: Cream, oats, very light roast, and extremely light notes of coffee and chocolate. Not horribly complex for its style, but extremely refreshing and quite flavourful. Near perfectly balanced. Quite nicely built.

Mf: Lovely creamy mouthfeel - very smooth and quite wet. Those oats were put to good use. This texture complements the style quite nicely. Nitro was the right option for this beer; well done Summit. Incredible.

Dr: Incredibly drinkable. Uses cream to overcome stout dryness instead of succumbing to porter-esque workarounds. The oat smoothness synergizes brilliantly with the nitro-draught system.

Found this in all places, Stone City, IA right outside Anamosa on tap!! Was pretty excited to try it. Pours a dark black with tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, somewhat faint. Flavor is roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate. Very smooth and an awesome creamy texture. Two thumbs up!

Had on nitro-tap at TJ's in Paoli, PA. Poured a dark brown/black color with a bit of ruby on the peripheral. Creamy beige head that kept retention and left nice lacing. Had an aroma of roasted malts, smoke, leather (?) and coffee. Tasted of coffee, smoke and seriously, leather. Was a touch metallic towards the beginning but as it warmed that flavor seemed to fade.

Full-bodied with low carbonation. This is a dessert beer at best...do not drink it with food like I did or else you'll be unable to finish your meal.

Overall, not a bad brew, but definitely not a favorite. Still, good and fairly drinkable as a night-cap.

First had: on nitro at TJ's, Paoli, PA

Poured into a pint glass, a dark brownish black, a bit light and clear around the edges when held to the light. A creamy tan head that retained and laced well. Smell of roasty malts and smoke. Taste was very dry and roasty, dark malts, and smokey leather, with a beef jerky sensation detectable. Coffee bitterness in the finish. Medium-bodied and fairly drinkable, though not the kind of stout I'd want to order for a casual session.

look: 5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Pours close to black with ruby hints around the edges. About 2" of light tan head forms which has extremely good retention and lacing.

Smell: A touch of roast, chocolate and coffee. Pretty weak smell overall.

Taste: Weak roast and chocolate with an odd fruity finish. Nothing in the way of smooth oatmeal and rich roast and chocolate flavors.

Overall: Medium bodied with low carbonation. Pretty good here. I did not care for this oatmeal stout much. Maybe due to the fact that it was on nitro tap it killed the flavors, but I found it pretty weak all in all. I'd try this out again if given the chance.

I had this beer after a Summit brewery tour. Pours great with a great head. Taste is even better with an exceptional finish. Smell is different than most stouts because of the oatmeal. Hard to find but if you find it you should definitely try it.One of the best stouts I've ever had.
